Hi! I am new in the forum and a happy DFI user until last week.
My computer was working very good for 1 year or more, then one day I have no power and obviously no boot.
The orange led down in the PCI2 it's on but nothing happends when I push my case's button or my motherboard's power button. All death...
Ok, that might be a death PSU or a death MOBO, but wait!!
If I continue pushing the power button very fast and wait around 5 minutes the MOBO turns ON, everything spings and I get a boot screen, I can enter to the BIOS, overclock, use VISTA, everything works perfect!! 100% perfect and stable even at overclock speeds!!
So... I made a quick CLEAR CMOS, same problem. Then i did this "long" CLEAR CMOS: http://csd.dficlub.org/forum/showthread.php?t=710
I wait'ed for 24 hours with the same results!!
I took the mobo out tested in a wood table and got the same results!!
Ok, after that I rebuild the case, same results!!
Do you think the mobo it's partially death? Any way to fix it?
I have notice some wird things, like...
-. After "unplug" the PSU from the power or switching it OFF and then turn it again, the MOBO turns on in less time.
-.If I get my computer on, use it for a while and then turn it off it takes longer to power again.
